Partnering with Tusk
CONSERVATION THROUGH EXPLORATION
As longstanding friends to the charity, Exceptional Travel has supported Tusk for over a decade on the hugely successful Lewa Safari Marathon, held annually in Kenya, as well as ad hoc projects ranging from journalist support to traditional travel planning for donors. This collaboration has naturally strengthened over the years, and we are delighted to formalise the relationship by becoming one of Tusks partners.
Together, we are pioneering long term conservation travel, a sustainable way to support the protection of nature, wildlife and local communities through travel. Exceptional Travel are proud to be a travel partner to Tusk, enabling us to further our contribution to the charity and help strengthen their impact throughout Africa.
